EXCLUSIVE: Murdoch Son Pressured Sean Hannity to Cease Seth Rich Coverage

Published

on

Following Sean Hannity’s embarrassing buckling on coverage of the Seth Rich case, sources at Fox News told Big League Politics that he was pressured to relent by one of the Murdochs.

“One of the Murdoch sons was all up his ass over this,” another insider told Big League Politics.

Prior to airtime, Hannity had tweeted, “huge announcement tonight about Seth Rich, Trump/Russian Collusion corrupt media, the liberal effort to silence me. And my future at Fox!”

But as we reported, it turned out that his “huge announcement” was that he was caving into pressure and would no longer be covering the story “at this time.”

While his statements on the show indicated that he was cowering to Media Matters, who had called for a boycott of his advertisers — it seems that one of Murdoch’s sons was actually behind it.

“Please do not interpret what I’m saying tonight to mean anything — don’t read into this — I promise you I am not going to stop doing my job — to the extent of my ability. I am not going to stop trying to find the truth,” Hannity cryptically said on air. “That effort is not stopping in any way shape matter or form. I am continuing the work I promise to do every day for you — and at the proper time we shall continue to talk a lot more.”

After the show, the Fox News host took to Twitter once again, sharing an epic Ben Garrison cartoon of Julian Assange’s friend Kim Dotcom, and declaring that he is “closer to the truth” than ever.

Interestingly, Murdoch’s sons were also rumored to be behind the firings of both Bill O’Reilly and Roger Ailes.

“Apparently, the wives of the ascendant sons of Rupert Murdoch, James and Lachlan, have been making moves behind the scenes. First, they succeeded in their efforts to get the guy who helmed Fox News since its inception, Roger Ailes, shitcanned last summer. Now, they’ve gotten an arguably even bigger scalp…” the Ralph Retort reported in April.

One look at James Murdoch’s wife Kathryn Murdoch’s Twitter account and it is immediately clear that her views are in direct conflict of those presented by the most popular hosts at Fox News.

She is also a fan of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner — while hostile towards White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon.

Earlier in the day, Kim Dotcom, a tech entrepreneur who is close to WikiLeaks, released a public statement declaring that Rich was the leaker — and that he knows this because he was in contact with him.

“I know this because in late 2014 a person contacted me about helping me to start a branch of the Internet Party in the United States. He called himself Panda. I now know that Panda was Seth Rich,” Kim wrote in his statement. “Panda advised me that he was working on voter analytics tools and other technologies that the Internet Party may find helpful. I communicated with Panda on a number of topics including corruption and the influence of corporate money in politics.”

Dotcom added that, “he wanted to change that from the inside.”

Following Dotcom’s statement, mainstream media suddenly gained scruples about covering murder investigations. Pundits, journalists and Democratic Party insiders immediately sprung into action viciously attacking and attempting to shut down any coverage of the new information — because a Democratic crisis manager who is representing the family told them to. Anyone who dared to report the highly newsworthy claims was immediately branded “insensitive to the family,” “ghoulish,” and “fake news.”

Apparently their mission was successful.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott Pledges to Outlaw Big Tech Censorship

Texas has had enough.

Published

on

Texas Governor Greg Abbott is pledging to outlaw Big Tech’s left-wing censorship, announcing his support of a bill in the Texas State Senate that would open social media monopolies to lawsuits from users at a state level.

State Senator Bryan Hughes Senate Bill 12 would provide legal recourse for users of Big Tech platforms who are banned from the services to return, designating Big Tech monopolies such as Twitter, YouTube and Facebook as common carriers.

“They are common carriers and they cannot discriminate against people … it’s a violation of the first amendment,” Hughes said. “This is going to protect Texas’ free speech and get them back online.

These are the areas that used to be the courthouse square where people would come and talk,” said Abbott of the legislation. “Now, people are going to Facebook and Twitter to talk about their political ideas, and what Facebook and Twitter are doing — they are controlling the flow of information, and sometimes denying the flow of information.

Texas is taking a stand against big tech political censorship. We are not going to allow it in the Lone Star state.

The law establishing legal recourse against online censorship may prove legally durable enough to avoid breaching Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. That law provides immunity for user-created content on internet platforms, and doesn’t give social media platforms a right to discriminate against active or potential users on the basis of political ideology.

The future for fighting Big Tech censorship lies at a state level. While some state Republican officials have proven reluctant to separate themselves from the lucrative business lobbies of Big Tech oligarchs, Hughes’ approach seems legally innovative enough to give free speech defenders a fighting shot at free expression online.
